He married Martha Elizabeth BEAUCHAMP on 12 Feb 1896 in Florida.5 Born on 31 May 1870 in Florida.15,6 Martha Elizabeth died in Jackson Co., FL, on 1 Oct 1938.15,6 Buried in Cow Pen Pond Cemetery, Jackson Co., FL.15,7 aka: Ellen, Martha Ellen.21

I assume that George’s wife Ellen in the 192021 and 193024 censuses would be the same person as Martha Elizabeth, but it is possible that he married a second time. (The ages would be fairly consistent, and the death date for Martha is after 1930.)
